Thank you, Donors!
As the year comes to a close, I cannot help but be reminded of how important it is to express gratitude to you for your gift of generosity to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, Society of St. Peter the Apostle and Pontifical Association of Holy Childhood.
Nothing can affect how we live our lives more than forgetting the benefits of the Lord. When we forget what God has done for us in the past, we lose hope for the future.
In the gospel of Luke, the healing of the 10 Lepers, Jesus tells us of the one who returned to express his gratitude and said to the grateful leper “Your faith has made you whole”. It was indeed the man’s faith that saved him and allowed him to enter into relationship with God and others. His faith manifested itself in his gratitude.
In the relationship that exists between you, our donors and the Pontifical Mission Societies, you enable missionaries to do the important work of spreading the Faith to those in remote mission areas. You are treasures for our missionaries and those they serve!
In this Christmas season of Joy and Peace, may you discover His love in all that you give and receive. Thank you so much for sharing these gifts with us.
Wishing you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
